Last time we heard from Kenyon Dixon, he hooked up with PJ Morton, BJ The Chicago Kid and Charlie Bereal for a cover of Sam Cooke’s “Bring It On Home To Me,” inspired by the film One Night In Miami. Now he’s linked back up with PJ for his latest single “Escape.”
Dixon and Morton share a message that hope is always just around the corner, even when it feels there is none on "Escape." Kenyon starts it off by singing about the bleak headlines and lost dreams but offering the idea that, “Something’s telling me we gonna be alright / Live your wildest dreams, it’s all in your mind,” on the chorus. PJ asks, “Is this a safe space to express?” wanting to get some things off his chest, namely the fact he feels like he can’t win for losing, like many of us. Although this isn't a gospel song, the overall theme is an inspirational one. Kenyon and PJ remind us that trouble don't last always, and the uplifting chorus will make you feel like there truly is light at the end of the tunnel.
In addition to this duet with PJ Morton on “Escape,” Kenyon has a few other recent collaborations on his resume, including working with Jamal Moore on his single “Paradise,” Jake & Papa on their song “Higher” and his own track “Expectations,” a duet with Alex Isley. Mr. Dixon clearly works well with others and is even scheduled to join Ledisi on her The Wild Card Tour this fall.
